A Winnipeg Blue Bombers fan can finally wear pants for the first time in 18 years after his team won the Grey Cup in Calgary on Sunday.
Chris Matthew made a no pants pledge in 2001, promising friends he would only wear shorts until the Bombers won the cup.
With the Bombers winning the championship — beating the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 33-12 — Chris’ calves were bare no more.
“It’s been a long time coming,” he said after putting on army-print pants immediately following the game.
“It feels really, really odd. It feels like things are crawling on my legs, to tell you the truth.”
His wife Darla Matthew was happy with the Grey Cup’s result.
Chris said he actually likes wearing shorts.
